My 2013: Adios Hair

It is 1 A.M. in London and having just chimed in the New Year to champagne and grapes, the resolution I want to focus on is "getting over myself." I had a hectic few weeks leading up to the holidays. I was busy, overcommitted, exhausted and run off of my feet. One night I was complaining about it to my darling H who kindly told me to get over myself, stop going on about it and turn on the rugby.

Egg Whites Cake with Lemon Frosting

I love this egg white cake. I had to make this cake because I had made a flan that required 6 egg yolks and well I needed to use my egg whites! Very moist cake and simple. It goes well with cream & strawberries or with this easy to whip-up lemon frosting. Great cake especially for people who love cake but not incredibly sweet ones.

I'm going to tell you a story

This morning, C reminded me how great being a mom is. From my bedroom I shouted, "Cristina, can you get dressed please."

"No, mummy, I tell you stury of Goldilocks and of her bears too. I cant find porridge." 
I walked in to find her organizing props to tell me the story.

Lesson re pizza

I have totally accepted my journey on an eternal diet because of my uncontrollable addiction to carbs and sweets. But seriously, why on earth did I order pizza last night? And what possessed me to weigh myself this morning! Lesson: NEVER EVER WEIGH YOURSELF THE MORNING AFTER CONSUMING NEARLY AN ENTIRE LARGE PIZZA!


Hilarious! Absolute Humor! Hilarious!

Awesome Child A

Last Friday we had a play-date with eight 2 year olds (my C included) and A who is now 3. I survived, but it is all a bit of a haze because one thing that you should never ever do at a play-date with eight 2 year-olds is go to a play-date with eight 2 year olds!
